Podcast #45: Arts + Tech: Artists Respond ft. Amelia Winger-Bearskin

Grantmakers in the Arts continues discussions centered around arts and technology. Technology is not neutral, so how should funders target their dollars in order to advance the growth of arts and culture towards justice? We asked artists the question, “how can the intersection of arts and technology contribute to a racially just future, and what do funders need to know?” In our third episode of the series, we are joined by Amelia Winger-Bearskin, professor, artist, and founder of UF AI Climate Justice Lab, Talk To Me About Water Collective, and Wampum.Codes Podcast. Listen below.
